A lot of edibles, especially if I take them at night, leave me with a light weed hangover the next day. With this Cheeba Chew, I woke up feeling pretty damn refreshed and not only no worse for wear, but in a decent mood — a rarity for mornings around my house.
The new additions to the Cheeba Chews line — the Trifecta caramel taffy with a 1:1:1 CBG:CBD:THC ratio and the Sleepy Time chocolate taffy with a 2:1 THC:CBN ratio — come in sleek yet inviting packs of 20 bite-sized chews. The gold-tinted aesthetic of these packages brings to mind the elegant, understated luxury vibe of dark chocolate treats like Riesen’s or Skor bars. You’ll find batch information and THC content displayed on the back of the outer wrapper, and the front label includes instructions for accessing the separately packaged chews in the breakable plastic tray inside.
Considering my previous Cheeba experience, I sampled a Sleepy Time chew fairly late in the evening, around 10:15 p.m., in preparation for the effects to hit around the time I wanted to drift off to sleep. Once again, around 50 minutes later, I noticed myself starting to drift off a bit. Then the mild stoniness slowly permeating my head also became apparent. After another 15 minutes of getting ready for bed, my head hit my pillow and I was out in no time.
I definitely enjoyed the even mix of mild psychoactivity and palpable body relaxation, feeling sufficiently stoned and also just calm, relaxed, and full of thoughts for a good portion of the day. I was also kind of surprised by this chew’s mood-boosting quality, which seemed to carry over well after the other psychoactive effects had worn off.
Individual chews come in two trays of 10 stacked on top of one another. Each piece snaps off from the rest of the tray pretty easily, and the lining is accessible and easy to peel off. And because the tray was easy to work with, I walked away from the unpackaging experience with a sense of appreciation for the precision and security of the way these chews are contained.
With most edibles, you get a mix of vague cannabis extract flavor with whatever central ingredients make up the product. Sometimes these flavors clash. Other times they blend well. Luckily, Cheeba Trifecta chews are of the latter variety. These bite-sized caramel taffy chews give a taste that blends smoothly with the inherent cannabis flavor, and as it melts in your mouth, you get an assurance that it is cannabis-infused, as advertised, while delivering a noticeable caramel taste that isn’t overly sweet.
If any of this resonates with you, and you’re still looking for a convenient, tasty, and appropriately sweet edible that offers a well-rounded high, Cheeba Chews’ new line of caramel and chocolate taffy might be for you. For this review, I’ll be trying Cheeba’s Trifecta and Sleepy Time taffy chews.
After sampling the Trifecta taffy and being more than satisfied with its effectiveness, I decided to try only one Sleepy Time chew in the evening to test out its effectiveness as a sleep aid. These chews offer a 2:1 THC:CBN ratio with 5 milligrams THC and an added dose of melatonin, so I figured if these things worked, one chew would probably do the trick for me. In a similar fashion to the Trifecta taffy, it only took about 50 minutes to get the full effect.
I could be way off here, but I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon of fatigue proliferating across a variety of industries. In Hollywood, for example, even the biggest superhero movies are underperforming at the box office — first and foremost because of the pandemic, but also because your average audience member has a wicked case of superhero fatigue. In the cannabis industry, it seems among consumers and industry insiders alike, there’s a nagging sense of edible fatigue out there.

What Are Cheeba Chews?
Cheeba Chews stands apart among the rest of the edible brands due to its miniature size. Its small size makes it a portable and discreet option without compromising on potency. Competitor brands offer similar serving sizes, although they tend to come in a slightly larger size. With Cheeba Chews, you can take a smaller treat and get bigger results.
